satan: hey what if we ruined this guys life. bet he'd hate you then
god: ok bet
@CyclopsCaveman I think the story is more about Job's a**-hole friends who lack all empathy. Those guys are just spewing the same excuses every status quo moralist has for why bad things aren't actually bad as long as god is responsible for them. We should just shut up and suffer, and trust God - right?
@CyclopsCaveman I find it interesting how some churches place so much emphasis on Satan but he's barely mentioned in the Bible (a few verses in the Tanakh and what? 66 times in the New Testament, but not always by name?)
@calculsoberic christianity is just weird like that
@CyclopsCaveman bwahahaha! My in-laws are evangelical. I just kind of tolerate it.
